1. Tailor Content to the Consumption Patterns. 


2. Provide a Consistent Message. 


3. Think Content-First. 



"The best way to engage with consumers is to create an experience that provides them with fresh, relevant and valuable content. Consider incorporating interactive elements that allow the consumer to partake in the brand experience. This can be anything from taking a photo with a branded digital frame at a display in-store or playing an interactive game.


Going beyond impressions, good content should generate true consumer engagement. And the more interactive the content is, the better it will connect with consumers. When creating content, consider incorporating sensory elements such as sight, sound and touch if possible to create memorable and engaging interactions that create an immersive brand experience across multiple screens."
